John Marsden Writing Topic #448
Describe an experience that caused you to form or acquire a particular belief**
Three years ago I experienced my first serious relationship. The relationship was a mostly happy and healthy one and provided me with a great deal of happiness.
This man came into my life after two years of tragedy and family and other personal dramas. At the end of 2012, after experiencing all of this unhappiness, I made the conscious decision to let it all go and be happy. When I let things go and was ready to embrace happiness, love came into my life.
This experience made me caused me to believe that not only everything happens for a reason but love and happiness only comes along when I’m open to it and I have to make myself open to it.
